about the economy or about the environment? how would you describe it? >> it's less about the environment and more about the value created by combining airlines. there was no better opportunity in our view for our shareholders than for us to enter into this merger and investing in stand alone growth or returning to shareholders. two networks like that, creating one network that provides so much more to so many others. it will create a billion dollars a year in synergy and that goes to shareholders and we could not have created that independently. >> neil, from our perspective, at american we've completed what is the most successful restructure you are going iningn the airline industry and we negotiated a deal with doug that's sensible and owners of american will own 72% of the newly merged enterprise. >> finally your view of the economy right now and the notion the president expressed, that things are getting better, markets are storming back. and that in this environment, there is more room for the government to spend, more room for companies to look forward to what he ha
. not returning anything. borrowing costs are very ow. stocks are pretty cheap. we have an environment where growth is slow. it is tough to grow. so you think about doing it in organically rather than organically. people are willing to step out with a little bit more confidence to do some of these deals. this is the beginning and we hope to do more. neil: if you are barack oama, you will look at the sensei of wall street has a problem with me, it has a funny way of showing . what do you make of that? >> yes, i am sure. i am plenty convinced that president obama and his team will try to take full credit for this. inflation was not taken into account during neocommunist that i can't help but look at the situation with all these announced mergers and think what it could be that president obama and his team realized that they can't get to their spending nirvana without getting this economy growing. and the economy is hobbling along, even if slow runners can across the finish line. neil: we may be back to levels of the market where we were five years ago. but it has been a steady climb back to wo
. risks will come down. but we're still in an environment where you need to focus on the risks out there. >> i don't think that's anytime soon. >> and that will be very important. >> i think investors need to focus on that down the road. for now, it's not going to be a factor pore probably most of the year, we would think. >> and i guess a little surprising is the economy feels like it's starting to turn. if you look at housing, if you look at what we hear from a lot of ceos about what's happening at this very moment, they feel okay with that. it's just when you ask them to give you guidance for the next quarter or the next year, they say they can't see that far. >> and i think it comes down to having things like the ee quester. certainly a reconciliation after the fact that the u.s. is spending so much more than it brings in. i think one of the interesting things, just around rates, bullard yesterday, for example, said that he expects 3% real growth this year. so 3% real growth and 2% inflation, that gets me to march like a 5% ten-year. we're nowhere close to that. lloyd blankfein was o

to make sure it works in the unforgiving investing environment where diversifying by sector loan is not enough. things have gotten out of control or irrational. you need five different areas covered. you need some gold. you need a dividend paying stock with a high yield. you need a growth stock. need something speculative and something foreign. particularly in a year when the dysfunction in capital is so darn palpable that you have to protect your portfolio from the chaos washington is putting us through. we have gone from being incredibly business friendly company to one that is capable of wrecking just about any business if congress and the president put their minds to it. isn't that the lesson of the partisanship and acrimony over the tax wranglings and the spend-a-th spend-a-thons. cover all five markets and you with win in any market. i'll teach you how to analyze stocks so you fill every position with the best possible names that you feel comfortable with and i feel comfortable with. first, what do we need? well, look, i did them first. we need gold. need gold because gold

for the government to tell business you will pay that guy that amount of money. >> i think it is in this environment we need some change and people, again, if you had to look at the bigger picture which i think that everybody is looking at microscopic approaches to thing. we have an economy that's suffering, a deficit. an entitlement program that's in big trouble and getting people off of poverty you have to pay them more, no one is making $9, $18,000 a year, how do you expect people to live on 14,000 a year. stuart: don't expect them to live on that, that's what the minimum wage is for, for people fresh out of high school, getting their very, very first job. not for guys in their 40's and 50's. >> and people coming out of high school don't have to worry about getting a first job because with obamacare and-- >> and haven't got a job, they haven't got a job because of this economic policy. i've got to go. nicole, we are on all time high watch for the dow. we open a bit lower and now we're up a bit. >> i'm going to graduate you because you talked and talked and talked until the dow is back in the gree

it can be an issue because it can cause an artificial barrier and can hurt the jobs environment. we would recommend that the administration focus on creating jobs. that will create demand for people and that will create a natural wage increase. look, the reality most markets minimum wage is irrelevant. you're paying people well above that. but it is a scenario we think the focus should be on job creation first and you will get demand for folks and that will raise wages for folks. liz: talk about expansions plans here in the u.s. and europe. you're building up all kinds of properties including a couple here in new york and these are high-end or upper scale hotels, correct? >> higher scale. liz: you only do that when you believe an economy is coming back. >> we do. barring something unforeseen that will set us going backwards from washington which we do not think we will we get, we think the hotel business will be in sight for a stronger run. not a lot of hotels coming on for 14 or 15. that should be a four or five-year good run. we'll start with the wind at your back. we hope for great thi

in a deleveraging environment. many of the plans have yet to be put in place. we're definitely making progress. the markets should generally be moving higher but moving to fast to far on a near-term basis can cause some weakness and some pullback on the near-term basis. so we've been very much a advocate of kind of a cautiously constructive of positioning for portfolios for investors as a whole. not hiding in cash and treasurys but not necessarily jumping up and down on every stock we see. ashley: what fits the bill when you're cautiously optimistic and you kind of want to hedge your bets a little bit? >> what this means, we're trying to take selective risks. we're taking risks. we want clients to take risks. it is not hide under the covers and just own cash. but taking selective risks means you're not taking blind equity risk. that means buying some credit risk. high yield bonds. bank loans. international emerging marketing market debt. all these of those are attractive opportunities right now on a long-term basis. within equities, find your protection there. actually be more defensive in equ
